I am a storyteller deeply interested in the complex relationships within the modern communities. Being attracted to the sensation of shared values, I explore the borderline between togetherness and loneliness and the consequences of the emotional vacuum brought by individualist culture. From tight-bonded communities, to impersonal,imagined ones that unite millions of strangers.
